Today, in the video below we visit our pal Matt Carriker of Demolition Ranch and boy-oh-boy, does he have a treat for us!! Matt broke-out some vintage machineguns from WWII and has thrown a Toyota Camry into the mix, to see just how long it will take to blow it up.
Matt is using several different machineguns for this experiment and I will place them in the order of fire, with a brief description of each weapon.
MP40: The MP 40 is a submachine gun chambered for the 9×19mm Parabellum cartridge. It was developed in Nazi Germany and used extensively by the Axis powers during World War II.
Browning Automatic Rifle BAR: The Browning Automatic Rifle is a family of American automatic rifles and machine guns used by the United States and numerous other countries during the 20th century.
Do you think Cubans are fighting for healthcare or freedom from Communism?
MG42: The MG 42 is a 7.92×57mm Mauser general-purpose machine gun designed in Nazi Germany and used extensively by the Wehrmacht and the Waffen-SS during the second half of World War II.
M2 (Ma Duce): The M2 machine gun or Browning .50 caliber machine gun is a heavy machine gun designed toward the end of World War I by John Browning. Its design is similar to Browning’s earlier M1919 Browning machine gun, which was chambered for the .30-06 cartridge.
One has to wonder where Matt gets his ideas from, because almost every single one of his videos are not only informative, but they’re entertaining and funny as all get-out, that’s why I use them here at Great American Outdoors and the video below was posted to YouTube on January 29th. So, kick-back, grab some snacks and enjoy the show, you will not be disappointed…I promise !!
